I am not sure how they are different, but I will ask to relevant people.

Found an example of sample where both terms are used:
body_site UBERON:tongue
body_habitat UBERON:oral cavity
So, I guess the body site really specifically refers to the name of organ, tissue; while habitat is used in a more general sense, oral cavity, gastrointestinal tract...
